Time Flows

May 11, 2014

                                    Time flows forward like

                                    An icy babbling creek twisting

                                    Through snow covered pastures and

                                    Contoured fields with scattered woods dotting

                                    The hilly beautiful picturesque landscape

                                    Of pine, maple, oaks and cherry trees

                                    A cold stiff wind stirs the woods

                                    As a milk truck roars along highway K

                                    Corn stubble and sprigs of brown alfalfa

                                    Poke through the snow cows bellowed

                                    In the distance a red barn and silo

                                    Sat carved into a hill with a few maples

                                    Standing on the top of the hill.                          

                                    A chestnut mare munches on hay in the barn

                                    The horse huddles in the barn staring at Grandma’s

                                    House on an adjacent hill where

                                    The family has gathered to enjoy

                                    Company, Christmas cheer, hot cinnamon cider and

                                    Of coarse Grandma’s delicious homemade cookies with

                                    The sweet odor of Grandpa’s tobacco filling

                                    The house as grandchildren played

                                    But time has moved forward like it does

                                    The past leaves behind only memories.                                     

                                    Ashes has passed away

                                    A new black cat named Lindy bats

                                    At the snow falling from the porch door

                                    Keeping the author company at night as

                                    The author taps away writing for his agent! 

                                    He is living his dream with another

                                    Manuscript ready to go

                                    The impossible dream by many is becoming true

                                    Thanks to people who believed in the author

                                    Shining distant star against the dark sky

                                    A beacon of light now shines ahead.
